Menstruation is both a blessing and a curse to all women. Regular menstruation is a sign that your hormones are well-balanced and that your body is functioning well as it should. But unfortunately, this time of natural cleansing comes with mood swings, cramps and expensive and wasteful menstrual items.If you are seeking to become more eco-friendly with the items you use during your period, you might have already heard about Comfort menstrual cups. Essentially, a menstrual cup is a flexible bell-shaped cup designed to collect menstrual blood. To start using this hygiene device, you fold it and insert it in your vagina.
Simply empty the cup every 6-8 hours and you’re good to go.Most menstrual or period cups are made of rubber or silicone, so for our readers who are sensitive to latex, we suggest that you use a menstrual cup made entirely of silicone.
This fem-hygiene product is now making its way to the local market and you’re probably considering giving it a shot by now. One benefit of using menstrual cups is that you will save tons of cash! A Comfort cup can last for about 10 years and simply burning 3 of these will have you set for a couple of years, which is surely more efficient than buying pads monthly. Plus, it’s also good for the environment. So by switching to reusable feminine hygiene like the menstrual cup, you are certainly being eco-friendly by helping lessen waste.
Another benefit is that no matter how light or heavy your period flow may be, you’ll have more time between changes as you only need to empty your cup every 6-8 hours per day.
Before you purchase a Comfort cup, make sure you have selected the right size. We recommend taking the CUP QUIZ to know which size fits you. Comfort cups come in two sizes S are for women aged 25 and below and have not endured vaginal birth. It can hold up to 15 ml for women aged 25 and above or for anyone who has given birth through the vagina. It can hold up to 20 ml. The difference between size S and L is very small (size S is 0.5 cm smaller than size L) but still it is very important to use the proper size to prevent leakage. The vagina is 100% unique to the individual and the cup will never be a one size fits all product, so although vaginal birth is most often the deciding factor, other factors like cervix height, menstrual flow and activity level can influence which size you will need.
Upon using your Comfort menstrual cup, simply wash the cup with mild soap and water. And if the menstrual cycle is over, we suggest sterilizing it again in preparation for the next month. To sterilize it, you can put the cup in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Remember to not let the cup touch the bottom of the pot. Once you’re done, leave it there for a few minutes to let the water cool down. Take out your period cup and dry it with a clean towel.
And finally, store it in its case or pouch afterward.
